Our A-level application system for the new term in September 2021 is now open for sixth form centres across our three colleges - Coleg Llandrillo, Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor and Coleg Menai - and we urge prospective students to apply early as places fill up quickly!
For those of you currently in Year 11, deciding what to do after your GCSEs is difficult, and many students go with the simplest option, which is to stay in school. But, what if you're having doubts about your decision to go to sixth form?
Our A-level students tell us that they find huge benefits in studying with us: more choice - at AS/A Level alone, you can choose from nearly 40 different subjects; more support - Personal Tutors, a Learning Support Team, Student Advisors and Learning Coaches are all easily accessible; more independence - you'll be treated like an adult at college, and the skills you develop, such as communication, time management, teamwork, social skills and work experience, will make you more employable and prepared for the world of work or higher education. Last but not least, more social opportunities - over 20,000 students study across our campuses, so chances are that you'll meet many different and interesting people if you study with us…some of whom might turn out to be friends for life!
What's more, if you choose to study at one of our sixth form centres, you will leave with recognised qualifications that will significantly help get you the job, apprenticeship or university place that you really want!
Last year, despite the pandemic, there were numerous success stories across our colleges. Amongst those celebrating was 19-year-old Coleg Llandrillo Rhyl Sixth student, Sohaib Hassan, who gained an A* in History after studying for the full A-level in only 12 months. This additional A-level completed his already impressive suite of A-levels studied previously (A and A* grades), enabling him to accept an unconditional offer from Oxford University to read English Literature and Language.
Also, Isobel Marshall-Andrews from Llangaffo, Anglesey is now studying Plant Science at Sheffield University after gaining an outstanding A* in Biology, A* in Chemistry, A in Physics and A* in the Welsh Baccalaureate at Coleg Menai's Bangor campus. At Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor's Pwllheli campus, Lleucu Lane from Garndolbenmaen, is at Cardiff University studying Medicine after achieving an A* in Maths, an A in Biology and an A in Chemistry.
